In the winter of 2005/2006, Winzler & Kelly Consulting Engineers performed independent, third party field monitoring and sampling to determine the pollutant removal efficiency of two hydrodynamic separators installed at locations in Sonoma County, California. The study included flow-weighted composite sampling of the influent and effluent, a thorough assessment of suspended solids, and findings that provide additional data on the performance of hydrodynamic separators as a function of identified particle size distribution.

The project was completed in accordance with the “Technology Acceptance Reciprocity Partnership Protocol for Stormwater Best Management Practice Demonstrations,” hereafter referred to as the “TARP Protocol” The purpose of the TARP protocol is to provide a uniform method for demonstrating stormwater technologies and developing test quality assurance plans for certification or verification of performance claims (TARP, 2003). The TARP Protocol is currently endorsed by California, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
